Iraqi Special Operations Unit Destroys Islamic State Stronghold in Wadi Hauran

Footage released by the Iraqi Special Operations Command showcases an all-out assault on an Islamic State stronghold located near Wadi Hauran. They quickly overwhelm the Islamic State Fighters with withering automatic fire and rocket propelled grenades.


It's unclear exactly when this was filmed, but the last known combat operations by the Iraqi Special Operations community in the Wadi Hauran area took place in 2019. This could be footage from that raid against Islamic State fighters carried out by Iraqi Counter-Terror forces. In that specific raid, ten Islamic State fighters were killed.


For those unfamiliar with the geography of Iraq, Wadi Hauren is located in the al-Anbar province of Iraq near ar-Rutbah.
